Construction Law

Construction law is the core of our business. We regularly act for a wide range of clients from large public sector organisations to small subcontractors. Find out more about our key practice areas.

Training Courses

We work closely with our existing clients and industry bodies to understand the practical contractual issues which arise during a construction project. We then use this knowledge to develop market-leading training courses to help others navigate these pitfalls and to help organisations enhance their commercial recovery. Find out more about our training courses.

Dispute Resolution

We specialise in representing parties in adjudication, mediation and conciliation. Due to the fact that our staff are dual qualified construction and legal professionals, we have the ability to advise clients on both the technical and legal elements of their dispute.

What makes us Different

Satisfied Client Stories

The NEC training provided by William Brown was excellent and very pragmatic. William’s ability to relate the subject matter to real world scenarios brings and added dimension to what might otherwise be tough reading.

 

International Civil Engineering Contractor
Director

We have been employing the services of William Brown for a number of years with successful outcomes and decisions in both mediation and adjudication. Without a doubt the efforts; professionalism; NEC experience; thought processes and case law evidence which William brought to our cases was the fundamental reason decisions were awarded in our favour.

 

National Housebuilder
Director

I was extremely glad that we engaged with William to undertake a contract review. We were trying to meet ridiculously tight timescales, which did not phase William in the slightest. Despite the limited time, the information was presented concisely, thoroughly and in a far better format than other professional organisations with double the timescales. I would highly recommend both the professionalism of William and that of his team.

 

Specialist M&E Subcontractor
Contacts Manager

William represented us in a successful procurement challenge against a large public sector organisation. William has a tremendous grasp of both the law and the technical details required to win a case. We were extremely please with the result and the level of service provided by William and his team.
